Age-related sensorineural hearing loss.
Gradual loss of hearing, which accelerates after age 55, especially with regard to sounds at the upper frequencies. (473)
sensorineural hearing loss that is associated with aging. Presbycusis is a gradual ongoing loss of hearing linked to changes in the inner ear. People with presbycusis often have difficulty understanding speech, especially in noisy situations, and may be intolerant of loud sounds. Presbycusis usually affects both ears.
A condition associated with hearing loss and age. It is the inability to clearly understand speech and includes the social and psychological impact of hearing loss. Also known as early hearing loss, it represents what goes wrong with the hearing mechanism when ears age.
difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds.
Loss of hearing that can accompany the aging process.
a heriditary sensory-neural hearing loss that comes with aging.
The term describing hearing loss produced by degenerative changes of aging. Because there are so many causes of hearing loss this label is tenable only when no other specific cause for older adult hearing loss can be found on careful ear examination.
Hearing loss associated with the aging process; usually affects high frequency hearing initially.
loss of hearing related to aging
Type of sensory neural hearing loss due to aging.
a hereditary sensory-neural hearing loss that comes with aging.
Sensorineural hearing loss associated with the aging process.
Hearing loss related to age. Back to the Audiology Clinic main page
loss of hearing that gradually occurs because of changes in the inner or middle ear in individuals as they grow older.
Gradual and biologically normal loss of acute hearing with advancing age.
An aging hearing loss that affects two thirds of people in the USA over 65 years of age.
Hearing loss that is attributed to the aging process.
The loss of hearing due primarily to the aging process High frequency loss is frequently a result of early hearing loss.
Presbycusis is the most common hearing problem in older people. It erodes their ability to distinguish the higher-pitch sounds common in everyday speech. In most cases, itâ€(tm)s caused by age-related changes in the inner ear, but the disease also can result from changes in the middle ear or from complex changes along the nerve pathways leading to the brain. Presbycusis most often occurs in both ears, causing gradual hearing loss, and many people who have presbycusis may not realize that their hearing is declining.
Hearing loss that occurs when sensitive hair cells in the inner ear that pick up sound waves die off over time.
Hearing loss due to old age.
Presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss, is the cumulative effect of aging on hearing.
